Chinese Woman Jumps Into Freezing Lake to Save Her iPhone

    How far would you go to save your iPhone? 

    The People’s Daily reports that an unidentified woman jumped into the 2-meter-deep Longtan Lake in Beijing on Feb. 18 to retrieve her iPhone 5 that had dropped into the water.

    The temperature in Beijing that day was around 38 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Last week, another woman in China also made headlines for plunging into a body of water. The 50-year-old was hailed as a hero after she dove into a Guizhou province lake to save an 8-year-old boy who had fallen in while roller skating.
